About

Workona is a better way to work in Chrome

We all work in the browser, but it was never built for work. We’re proud to be taking Workona out of beta this week to address the problem and we hope you enjoy the product!

    Pros: 

    Managing a ton of tabs, fast tab switching, easy organization

    Cons: 

    None so far

    I've been using Workona for about a week and it has already transformed by work process. My web browser is jam packed with tabs and keeping them organized is a constant challenge. Rather than try to reduce my tab load or force me to save and come back later, Workona understands I need these tabs open and makes it easy to group tabs together. The workspace concept makes perfect sense and it's easy to arrange tabs into meaningful workspaces. Switching between workspaces is surprisingly fast and simple. This is a must-have browser extension.

    Pros: 

    Managing tabs, quickly opening tabs for a certain context, dealing with "I might want to look at this later" guilt when closing things

    Cons: 

    Doesn't sync with mobile Chrome

    Workona has helped me tame the tab explosion that comes from working in web apps all day. I set up workspaces related to projects or responsibilities, so I can pull up an entire set of related tabs at once. This lets me have all my tabs of notes, related material, project plans, etc. at hand without having to dig through Google Drive and Confluence. It's even better when I'm running from meeting to meeting and need to switch from one set of related material to another.

    Pros: 

    Super easy to jump back into previous workflows without keeping tabs open

    Cons: 

    It's desktop only. I still have like 90+ open tabs on mobile :)

    I've been using Workona for a few months now, and it has drastically reduced the time & cognitive cost associated with context switching in my daily work. It's easier than it's ever been for me to jump right back in where I left off because all my tabs are neatly organized and stashed away. It's definitely worth a try.

    Pros: 

    Managing different projects in my browser is a piece of cake

    Cons: 

    Tab switching is a little odd

    I love workona! I finally feel like I have organization in my browser. I can keep my different projects for work separate in different workona work spaces which makes context switching a breeze. It’s been great to see this product grow and adapt to feedback in the past year. I’m a happy user and would happily pay because I’d be lost without it. Now I just need to get my coworkers on it so we can all share work spaces.

  • Pros: 

    Sleek, intuitive, increases my efficiency

    Cons: 

    I want bookmark import!

    I predict that in a couple years, this will be a web staple a la Google Drive. It looks and feels completely professional-grade, while being dead simple to use. Workona makes it easy to organize and save tabs into discrete workspaces so I can return to them at any time, whether that's in a few minutes or a few months. It's a tool I didn't know I needed, and now I use it every minute of my workday. Highly recommend.

  • Pros: 

    The design is very clear and usable. It's simple and it helps me stay organized "resources" feature

    Cons: 

    None yet

    I've installed this before, but never got around to looking at it. But the other day when I had about 56 tabs open I felt a bit overwhelmed. Hence, I reached back to this extension. I've numbered my workspaces which helps with organisation. It's very useful and I like the suspension option. It hasn't given me trouble yet.

  • Pros: 

    Easy context-switching inside of a browser

    Cons: 

    Weirdness around alt-tabbing on Linux

    Workona is in early stages, but it's already worth using. To everyone who has more than 5 tabs open at a given time: stop it. Use Workona instead. Have your friends stage an intervention if they must.

  • Pros: 

    Tabs organised.

    Cons: 

    Interface is a little confusing at the beginning.

    This is a great tool, as a Simple Tabs Manager user in Firefox, I was looking for a similar extension for Chrome, but I expected a different behavior when switching workspaces, because every time I do it, Workona opens tabs allways in a new window.

    In my opinion, there should be an option for switch workspaces in the same window you are already using.

    None

    Workona is the perfect alternative to Station, because it gives access to Chrome extensions

    Pros: 

    Nice workflow

    Cons: 

    Replaces new tab, need a lite version that doesn't do this

    I'm sticking with Toby only coz it offers a lite version that doesn't replace my new tab and a free unlimited workspaces. But I understand the later.

    Pros: 

    Works really smooth on low end computers.

    Cons: 

    Nothing such

    I am Toby user. But I find Workona more productive. Search, Project tab and Drag n Drop functions make it more exciting.

  • Pros: 

    Tabs remain open; clean look; fast; definitely increases productivity.

    Cons: 

    Resource intensive (understandable: mainly because it doesn't close tabs unless you specify); No options for mobile.

    This is my first review on Product Hunt. I felt like I had to spread the word: This product is simply amazing.
